Hawkish American commentator Bill O’Reilly has vowed to flee to Ireland if Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders becomes president of the United States.
On his Fox News show on Thursday, O’Reilly argued that Sanders wanted to “dismantle” Medicare and the Affordable Care Act “in the sense that it would be Berniecare and it would be much more than it is now.”
“If Bernie Sanders gets elected president, I’m fleeing … I’m going to Ireland. And they already know it. … I shouldn’t say it publicly because that will get Sanders more votes,” O’Reilly said.
“I shouldn’t say it publicly because that will get Sanders more votes, but I’m not going to pay 90 percent of my income to that guy,” added the blustery talk show host, who is proud of his Irish roots. “I’m sorry, I’m not doing it.”
Sanders, a self-described socialist, democratic socialist, has reportedly proposed up to 90 percent personal income tax rates for top American earners.
